Stumbling upon Paradiso Ristorante in Lake Worth is a little like fishing up a Van Cleef & Arpels diamond tennis bracelet while you're Dumpster-diving. In a town of taverns, you hardly expect to find a restaurant where all the waiters dress in expensive black suits with silk ties and call you "Madam." Not only is this space beautiful and classy -- from the violet-tinted lighting to the stone walls and giant murals of the old country -- but the food's exquisite: Chef Angelo Romano turns out mushroom risottos, fillets of sole, venison steaks, and handmade raviolis that have no match in this vicinity. Paradiso also has its own pastry chef; witness the tortes, butter cookies, pistachio cream pies, and flourless chocolate cakes under the pastry counter at the entrance. Yes, you can have it all: Their four-course $58 tasting menu, served nightly, is quite a bargain (and so is the seven-course, for $90).
